The Merged Fiat Chrysler and Peugeot Group Will Be Called ‘Stellantis’

Consolidation will be the future of the automotive industry, and right now there’s no better example of that than the forthcoming fusion of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and France’s Groupe PSA—both of which have seen their fair share of mergers in recent years.

And what they settled on was this: “Stellantis.”
